Okay this one is throwing me for a loop. I have installed VLC media player on Ubuntu 10.4 / Back | Track5 but it will not launch. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it, tried running it from the terminal and the quick launch icon, as well as by associating a file with it and double-clicking the file. Nothing has worked thus far. I use this machine to learn Back | Track and have many .flv files that I need to view. The only troubleshooting info I found is the following but it applies to Mac:
VLC does not launch on my Mac anymore. What to do?
Please have a look at the specific FAQ, which covers multiple solutions to this issue.

This can be an error if libdvbpsi was not installed when vlc was compiled. To fix this error, install libdvbpsi; then re-compile vlc. libdvbpsi
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
